i heart faces ~ Smile

I would like to introduce this incredible smile to you.


This is Colonel William Crawford, who fathered Portsmouth, Virginia where my beloved Olde Towne sits perched upon the shores of the Elizabeth River.  Founded in 1752, on sixty five acres of Mr. Crawford's extensive plantation lands, he carved out the plans for what would become the home to the United States first naval shipyard.  The square where he mapped out a jail, a courthouse, a church, and merchant shops is still there today.

Colonel Crawford is portrayed by the wonderfully intriguing Eric Price.  His vast knowledge of colonial history mixed with his articulate accent, transport you back in time.  He is available both for group and private walking tours throughout the historic district.  He is a treasure to Olde Towne.  (He makes me smile everytime I see him...and sometimes he makes me blush.)

We recently found him meandering through the shops visiting with First Friday participants, saying hello to the shop keeps, and adding to the ambiance that is Olde Towne.  How could you not love a smile like that?






Please go visit the other entries linked on the i heart faces site.  There are really the most amazing photographers out there capturing something we all need to do a lot more of....

Smile.

This is Home Girl and I hope today brings you something to smile about.

Love that shot--you have real talent! And thanks for stopping in and giving me confidence--you know I wouldn't have known about this link except for you. I hope I can get myself out of the house enough to do this each week--but we'll have to see.
